Employment Law for Employees
The law provides protection against victimisation and dismissal for workers who report certain types of wrongdoing by their employer or a third party (referred to as Whistleblowing).
In order to benefit from legal protection, the wrongdoing must be reported to their employer, or, in some circumstances, to particular third parties. In addition, the ‘wrongdoing’ must concern particular types of act or omission – for example, it can relate to a criminal offence or offences, breach of a legal obligation, or acts or omissions which cause danger to health and safety or damage to the environment.
If you believe you have been subjected to victimisation or if you have been dismissed as a result of reporting wrongdoing in the above circumstances Furley Page Employment Law Team can help. We can provide advice and representation if you decide to issue Employment Tribunal claims and, if you wish, can assist in negotiating a settlement with the employer.
